Chair Chair

First prototype of a possible chair. It's inspired by Enzo Mari's ideas of being able to make domestic necessities, using stock timber, simple hand tools and everyday skills. There's an echo of Utility furniture from the 1940s and a hint of Gerrit Rietveld's prototype Red and Blue chair from 1917 too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The prototype is informed by a collaborative furniture making project, and an experience of being assembled by a jig. I've also made a table, a lamp for my table, a bed base, market stalls, a bamboo bicycle and some films about home too.
